August 7th: The Arrival of Ray SefoAfter plans to host one of martial arts fighting’s finest fell through on a couple of occasions, superstar Ray Sefo will finally make his Las Vegas K-1 debut
In 2002, we were one step away from promoting a mega-fight in which he would have been a key player. Last summer, we almost locked him in for our eight-man, single-elimination tournament in August. On Saturday, August 7th, though, world Muay Thai champion and 2000 K-1 World Grand Prix Finals tournament runner-up, Ray “Sugarfoot” Sefo, will finally suit up for Las Vegas K-1 action during a Pay-Per-View televised “Battle at Bellagio III” Superfight with New Jersey-based professional boxer and kickboxer, Leo Loiacono.
Sefo’s highly-anticipated, first appearance will come less than two months after he made 6 foot 3 inch, 360-pound Bob “The Beast” Sapp his latest victim in K-1 competition. A trimmed down Sefo appeared in vintage form as he unloaded a storm of power punches before chopping Sapp down with a right hook to the head at the 29-second mark of the second round. Sapp tried, but could not beat the referee’s 10-count.
Still in Japan in the wake of his recent conquest, the 33-year-old superstar was taking a well-deserved breather from training when I reached him in his Tokyo hotel room. .: more

Hmm, I guess the main question here is how Oyama would perform in a K1 event? I’d say he’d do very well. As “swhite” mentioned, gloves would obviously absorb some of his famous punching power, but certainly he’d still generate a fearsome punch. As far as there being greater fighters outside the MMA world—of course this is true. Many of the best athletes in this world are competing in basketball, soccer, gymnastics, or have yet to be discovered at all. As MMA gains wider popularity and acceptance as a sport and venue of entertainment, more and more athletes will train in martial art. The statement of K1 being a sport and not martial art is purely subjective. Some people say true martial artists don’t compete; I don’t. I would consider Ernesto Hoost or Mikro Filipovic to be great athletes and great martial artists. Just because they make a living off their talents does not make them less of martial artists. …Read More
